White and a Splash of Colour Challenge

Good morning. Here is my entry for the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #35 - White and a Splash. i have to say that this was not an easy one. What constitutes a "splash"?
So I started with an A5 sized plain white card for the base.
An A6 piece of silk art card was run through my Cuttlebug using Swirls embossing folder. This was trimmed to size and then I followed over the raised pattern with Frosted Lace Glitter glue from Ranger and allowed it to dry.
The central image is a stamp from Creative Impressions which was coloured with Twinkling H2Os and edged with distress ink once the oval shape had been cut out with a Nestability. Double sided tape was applied all the way around the underside of the oval and a white fabric ruffle added. For the strip at the bottom of the card a strip of navy blue card was edged with the ruffle in the same way. The Ivy Leaves were embossed on white card using a Crafter's Companions Embossing board which fits the Ultimate Pro. Once cut out, a very small amount of distress ink was applied with a blending tool to define the edges.
The swirly card was layered onto a piece of navy card to define the edges and this in turn was bonded to the white base card. The central image was mounted onto this using Pinflair glue.
The ruffled strip was bonded in place with double sided tape and then the ivy leaves added with Pinflair glue to ensure that they were at different heights to give extra depth to the card.
